Langfields have recently been awarded Gold SafePQQ Verification by Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that major clients such as Sellafield, Doosan Babcock, BAE, James Fisher Nuclear, Wood Group and ReNew LLP has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in
meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
Langfields Facility Manager for Salford, Terry Miller added “Langfields has a proud history dating back to the 1800’s and our core business is built around the highest quality standards and on a strong foundation and culture of safety first. We are immensely proud of our team for playing a crucial role in maintaining and continuously improving upon the standards and expectations passed down to us. The Leadership teams in Salford, Dunfermline and Tamworth are the current custodians of the organisation and as such it is our responsibility to ensure we maintain the legacy of the business whilst enhancing its current position for those who follow in the future; receiving this accreditation from Alcumus is a significant step on our journey to ensuring this is achieved. We encourage everyone, in all facets of the business, to take 100% responsibility for occupational health & safety to ensure they protect themselves, their colleagues and those around them ensuring we can all return home to our families safely at the end of each working day. Special thanks to Dave Egan, Langfields Group HSE Manager for his continued support of all the facilities and for playing a pivotal role in securing this accreditation amongst others.”
